The ony way the house is going to end obama’s war on coal is to do away with the EPA.

When will the “man-made climate changers” ever learn that the source of electricity is not the plug in the wall of your house - it comes mainly from coal fired power plants.

Hairy Reed will never bring it up for a vote in the Senate.

The only way to stop Obama is if about two dozen democrat senators suddenly wake up and remember they are Americans.

I think it was started by presidential decree. I suppose it can be reversed the same way. Frankly, we need to dispose of most of the alphabet soup agencies. Energy, that has done nothing for independence, Education that has done nothing for education, Rural electric board (oh, give me a break), the DEA, IRS....

"The only way to stop Obama is if about two dozen democrat senators suddenly wake up and remember they are Americans."

Glad you still have your sense of humor after all your difficulties.

Sorry, but most Democrats are either socialists or communists. You know very well there is communist caucus in Congress.

As the saying used to go;

"THE ONLY GOOD COMMIE IS A DEAD COMMIE".
Although I don't approve of violence against those America killing communists. But if they all fell down due to heart attacks or stokes, I certainly wouldn't miss them. I'm tired of the good who die young. We all die, let the commies go first.

It could happen.
Six or seven Donks voted to oppose Barky’s latest addition to DOJ.

President Obama has already threatened to veto the measure, asserting it will “undermine public health protections of the Clean Air Act and stop U.S. progress in cutting dangerous carbon pollution from power plants.”

Has King Obama ever used his veto power? I don't remember him ever using it...

He will wear out his veto pen when Harry Reid loses his majority seat...

Don’t be so sure. How many democratic US Senators are from states that depend on coal? How many of them are up for re-election? Besides that, there was a propane gas shortage in some areas due to extreme cold and delivery issues.

...but you can bet that Republicans in coal states (or in states that have electricity that is not free) will over the next elections.

I’m still hoping that we will be looking at a lame duck president for two years after 2014. Frankly, I don’t care a bit if “nothing” gets done during those two years. Virtually everything “accomplished” over the last six years has been detrimental to my quality of life. And, I don’t believe that I am being singled out here.

There are other ways to de-fang these unelected bureaucrats that has plagued Washington since their formation. Have every state, like what Idaho has done, to write state laws making the EPA, FDA, Dept. of Education etc, etc. etc. and all their “RULES” and “REGULATIONS” null and void in their states. It’s called the “10th Amendment” to our constitution. When every state in these 50 states, decide that they are the masters of their domain, not these unelected bureaucrats. This act alone, will make all these Alphabet Govt. Agencies completely null and void. Just remember, these unelected bureaucrats have written over 80,000 pages of “RULES” and “REGULATIONS” in 2013 alone. Why were they allowed to do this? BECAUSE THEY COULD.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.

3. The earth is one of the sun’s planets.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

The only way the house is going to do anything to stop obama’s war on everything is simply stop the spending. Let the government be shut down. They’d win if all of the republicans would do what’s right for this country instead of trying to get re-elected to their perk filled “jobs”.

*YAWN*

Put it and keep it on MUST-PASS legislation and government shutdown.

Otherwise, just another FAKE BOEHNER VOTE to look good on the next CU FAKE CONSERVATIVE rating just like the fake defund Obamacare votes.

Jim, I'm not sure I can name two dozen Democrat senators who ARE Americans. More is the pity.

Do you see why secession is gathering steam in Maine.

We, in Maine have given up on states like Mass, NY, RI, CØnn, etc, etc, etc. We simply want to be free and our Constitution allows it.

I agree, but I would bet that Maine secedes before obama is brought to justice or the epa is abolished.

"I think it was started by presidential decree. I suppose it can be reversed the same way. "

The very best president we have had in the last 70 years has been Reagan, he promised to rid the country of the department of education, he made it bigger.

Jim, Maine will be celebrating her 100th anniversary as a free nation before that happens.
